So last weekend we drove up to Formby where the weather was supposed to be nicer than everywhere else in the North-West! Admittedly it wasn't exactly scorching, but it was nice to just spend some time at the beach, and Formby's particularly nice (maybe because it's a National Trust beach?) with the weathered, sea beaten wooden fences and soft, pebble and sharp-shell free sand. There's also a nice little walk though a wooded area next to the beach which we had a little wander around before we left in the late afternoon/tea time when the weather was quite "balmy" and it was really lovely!
I had another day off yesterday which was great because it's been so sunny and warm! We went on a little walk in the morning around the area that Matt lives and enjoyed our first ever yogberries! I can't believe I haven't had one before, they're delicious!!! Yogberries is a frozen yoghurt shop where you can buy pots of frozen yoghurt (either natural yoghurt or strawberry or chocolate flavour) and add toppings of your choice. There were quite a few different toppings like chopped strawberries, mango, pineapple, kiwi, pomegranate, raspberries, white chocolate buttons, oreos, milk chocolate buttons, marshmallows, and even gummy bears and reese's peanut butter cups! We went for medium strawberry flavour yoghurt with reeses peanut butter cups and gummy bears, it was actually quite big and there was plenty for the two of us to share and the amount of toppings put on was very generous, I must say! The lovely man who served us also explained that all three flavours of frozen yoghurt were fat free and sugar free, which made us feel much less guilty about the gummy bears! I didn't actually take a picture of our frozen yoghurt, I guess that's an excuse to go back and get some more....
We then went back to Matt's house and spent the afternoon next to the bbq and picking raspberries off a bush in his garden (which tasted very nice!) and then went to a park in the evening to play tennis for a while. Not the most adventurous of days off, but it's been nice to relax and enjoy some sunshine and warmth, not something we experience too often here in the North of England!
I don't plan on doing many of these, it's probably a little bit boring just seeing what I've been getting up to, but this is more of an explanation as to why I haven't blogged this week, but I'll be back posting regularly from now on!
